The Voice of Traditional Karate

Classical Fighting Arts is a periodical distributed by direct mail to subscribers, and through the major book chains. Wholesale distribution to bookstores in North America and Canada is by International Periodical Distributors (Source Interlink). While every effort are made to publish at quarterly intervals, greater emphasis is placed on quality of content than strict adherence to deadlines.

Specifications Full-color 84 page publication on glossy paper with a perfect bound spine. ISSN 1547-416X Designated an educational periodical by the United States Postal Service.
Readership Our readers can best be described as active martial artists who are knowledgeable, discerning, experienced, and committed. While their demographics are broad, a very large number are professionals with above average education and income.
Attendees at recent CFA Okinawa Budokan seminars represent an actual sample of our readership and included: attorneys, business owners, a community organizer, company secretary, electrical engineer, high school principal, mechanical engineer, physician, police officer, professional karate instructors, a software engineer, students, a stockbroker, surgeon, translator, and writer.
In the past our readers have favored high quality items especially books, DVDs and items of personal equipment. They exhibit strong brand loyalty, generate high transaction averages, and very few returns.
